To: The Team of Dominique AEGERTER, Rider No. 77 of the Moto2 Class.

Dear Sir,

According to Article 3.5.5 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations, we confirm our decision.


On 9 September 2017 at post qualifying technical control after the Moto2 Qualifying Practice of the GRAN PREMIO TRIBUL MASTERCARD DI SAN MARINO E DELLA RIVIERA DI RIMINI, you were found to be using an oil outside the FIM Moto2 specifications.

This contravenes the Article of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations “Only engine oil from the appointed oil supplier is permitted. This oil will be available at all official events and will conform to the FIM Grand Prix specification for the relevant class. The use of the official oil without any addition or alteration is mandatory.”


You were summoned to attend a hearing with the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel during the GRAN PREMIO MOVISTAR DE ARAGON. You attended the hearing and acknowledged the facts presented and elected to have the B Sample tested.

The B sample test results were received, showing the same results as the A sample, with both samples failing to comply with the regulations. You were subsequently summoned to attend a hearing with the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel during the MOTUL GRAND PRIX OF JAPAN. You attended the hearing and acknowledged the facts presented.


For the above reasons, the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel has imposed upon you a disqualification from the results of the entire event, being the Moto2 class Qualifying and Race of the GRAN PREMIO TRIBUL MASTERCARD DI SAN MARINO E DELLA RIVIERA DI RIMINI according to Article 3.2.1 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Disciplinary and Arbitration Code.

Right of Appeal

According to Articles 3.4.2, 3.4.6, and 3.4.7 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations, you have the right to appeal against this decision of the MotoGP Stewards Panel to the FIM Appeal Stewards. A statement of appeal must be made within 30 minutes from the date and time of this notification, and accompanied by a security deposit of €1320. The appeal can be lodged with IRTA who may also arrange for guarantee of the security deposit payment.
